Never mind the Beach Boys, Dick Dale or the sand stomping legends of the surf guitar. Chairman Of The Board brings together alternative, underground sounds culled from infamous surf soundtracks all but lost to the genre that created them.
Surfing is full of ‘golden eras’ but between 1964 and 1974 film directors immersed in the surfing culture commissioned original music for their ground breaking cinematic creations. From 60s beat to funky stoner rock, blues and folk, a psychedelic pulse breathed energy into giant screen sized 'tube rides' the directors had captured on film and as a consequence surfers had a soundtrack that beautifully reflected the barefoot roots of their lifestyle.
Over 30 years have passed since this golden era and many of these soundtracks have been lost to the mists of time until now. Compiled by Rowan Chernin, a founding editor of Loaded, he was the magazine’s Music and Clubs Editor during the hedonistic days of 90's Brit Pop and superclub culture. Chairman Of The Board brings these gems to the surface once more.
Prepare then for a beautiful, unparalleled aural ride.
